Artists for Haiti

On January 12, 2010, Haiti–the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere–was struck by a catastrophic earthquake that took nearly 230,000 lives, injured over 300,000 people, and left over a million homeless and displaced, according to reports from the United Nations and USAID (United States Agency for International Development). Even now, twenty months later, widespread devastation remains.

 

In early 2011, actor and director Ben Stiller joined together with gallerist and art dealer David Zwirner to organize Artists for Haiti (artistsforhaiti.com), a major evening art auction to be held at Christie’s in New York on Thursday, September 22 at 7 PM. Artists for Haiti, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) charitable organization, joins in the much needed humanitarian effort to raise significant funds for children's education and health programs. 100% of the proceeds from this sale will go directly to support nonprofits and NGOs that are already performing extraordinary work on the ground in Haiti, including: Architecture for Humanity, Artists for Peace and Justice, Ciné Institute, Grameen Creative Lab, J/P HRO, Partners In Health, and The Stiller Foundation, among others. Prior to the auction, all works will be on view at David Zwirner (September 6 – 14) and at Christie's (September 17 – 20).
